Established online store specialising in children's wooden toys and educational items since 2011. Work when you want, from wherever you want! This online business is currently run from Adelaide but it can be run from anywhere in Australia. All you need is an internet connection!
With the entire business being completely run from home this is an ideal opportunity for anyone looking to purchase an established business with proven track record, a solid customer base, flexible lifestyle opportunities and plenty of scope for expansion and growth.
The business practically runs itself via a streamlined ordering process with all sales coming through the eCommerce website. The WordPress based website is easy to learn and has an easy to use interface with a database of customers (including contact details) and 330+ products. This database is unlimited so adding more products and customers won't cost you a thing! The website also features auto invoicing, a discount code function, low and out of stock notifications, inbuilt SEO and many more features. It is also connected to a Google Analytics account which gives you easy access to live data and reports on your website and customer activity.
The domain name is paid and registered until November 2016 and hosting is paid until December 2015. Buyer can take over existing contract or transfer to their own preferred hosting and domain provider (help can be provided in this area).
We have contacts with approx. 10 suppliers who provide us with our 25+ brands, including well known and reputable 'boutique' wooden toy brands. Our suppliers have been selected for their quality products and not just their price tags so you can rest assured that we stock only the best of the best wooden toys that are ethically sourced and made, and are completely safe for children. All of our products meet Australian (and UK) safety standards.
We also have a contract with a courier so there are no trips to the Post office or long lines! Our courier will collect from your door and deliver directly to your customer anywhere in Australia. All parcels are tracked and we have never lost a parcel in 3 years!
The business has been steadily growing over the past three years with a 200% increase and a double digit growth in the 2013-2014 financial year. This strong niche has a high profit margin and produces a high dollar value per sale. I currently work approximately 10 hours per week but would suit 10-20 hours (or more) per week to see a rapid growth.
Included in the sale of the business is approx. $5k worth of stock (currently listed online and successfully selling, not old stock), a Facebook page with 29,600+ likes and a current reach of 14,306, an email marketing list of 530+, a Pinterest page with 176 followers and an Instagram account in very early stages.
As you can see all the hard work has been done for you! All you need is to be a little computer savvy and the rest can be learnt! I am happy to provide all training and will walk the buyer through any ownership transfers with suppliers, courier, web hosts etc. This rapidly growing business is already a success and lends a steady income which will only increase with a little investment of time and passion by a new owner.
Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions or if further information is required.
